Understanding Hydro Jetting: Powerful And Non-Chemical Drain Cleaning

Whether it is for drinking, bathing, or cleaning, we use water on a daily basis. 

A clogged drain is a smelly, unsightly, and unclean nuisance. The junk clogging up your pipes can cause corrosion, contamination, flooding, and other issues that are costly to repair. 

The good news is that clogged pipes can be cleared with professional plumbing services. Hydro jetting is a non-chemical drain cleaning method that uses pressurized water to remove clogs. 

What Are The Signs You Need Hydro Jetting?

If your home has a plumbing issue, it is best to call a professional plumber to inspect your home and diagnose the issue to determine the best solution.

Clogged pipes are caused by debris that gets stuck together on the inner walls of the pipes, creating obstructions that prevent water from flowing properly. This can give rise to unpleasant smells from your bathroom or kitchen, or for strange noises to be heard throughout the home.

If your sink or tub has been slow to drain, it can be tempting to pour drain cleaner down the drain and hope for the best. However, drain cleaners can be dangerously corrosive as well as ineffective at clearing drain blockages. Oftentimes, drain cleaners seem to clear clogs initially, but after a few days, the clogs appear to come back again.

How Safe Is Hydro Jetting?

Hydro jetting is an environmentally safe and non-invasive plumbing solution that does not involve the use of chemicals or other irritants or pollutants. When performed by a trained professional, hydro jetting is far safer than do-it-yourself attempts at drain cleaning using over-the-counter solutions. We highly advise against using household drain cleaner, as these chemical-based solutions can be corrosive to the pipes and hazardous to you and your family. Moreover, the simple act of pouring drain cleaner can have unforeseen consequences: the drain cleaning solution may splash and come in contact with you, exposing you to health and safety risks.  

Safe And Effective Professional Hydro Jetting Services

Due to the nature of pressurized water, hydro jetting begins with a professional plumbing inspection in order to determine whether or not the service is suitable for your pipes. Hydro jetting may not be suitable for homes with old pipes, which are too weak to withstand the power of pressurized water. Moreover, hydro jetting should only be performed by trained professionals, who perform the service with safety gear and proper equipment training.

California Plumbing offers a video recording and hydro jetting service package that will use video footage to check that your pipes have been cleared and to provide you with a report on the condition of your pipes. 

Hydro jetting safely and effectively removes almost anything, including hair, minerals, grease, sand, and tree roots. The water pressure used to hydro jet is typically 3000 PSI, adjusted based on the extent of the clog.
